Kids ages 8-13 are invited to join us for our energetic and educational summer camp – Camp Waggin’ Tails!

During our week-long camp held at the Homeward Trails Adoption Center in Fairfax Station, kids will learn all about animal rescue, responsible pet ownership, positive dog training, hear from a variety of pet professionals, and work hands on with carefully selected adoptable dogs while engaging in fun games and projects designed to reinforce what we have learned.

During summer 2020, Camp Waggin’ Tails will run Monday through Friday July 13-17 from 8:30am-3:30pm. Additional before and after camp hours may be available for an additional fee.

Registration is $400 per child and includes two daily snacks, all supplies, a water bottle and a Camp Waggin’ Tails t-shirt.

Camps are limited to 16 children per session so register today before they fill up! To ensure your child’s safety and that they receive the individual attention they deserve, Camp Waggin’ Tails operates with a minimum of one adult for every four children.

Please contact rebeccag@homewardtrails.org with any questions or to register.

 

Thank you to our Camp Waggin’ Tails Sponsors!

Looking to do something fun and rewarding on the weekend?

Why not get started as a Homeward Trails Adoption Counselor? Adoption Counselors are volunteers who are trained specifically to interact with prospective adopters at the Homeward Trails Adoption Center! You will share info on the dogs, gather info from the applicant, work with the Adoption Center staff to ensure a good match…and potentially play a key role in sending dogs into their forever homes.

 

We need folks NOW who are willing to commit 3 hours on a weekend…just once a month! Just 3 hours can help send more dogs home more quickly, thus allowing us to have space to rescue more. Imagine – just 3 hours of your time can save dozens of lives!

 

You will be trained and fully supported by the HT staff as you get acclimated to your role. It’s fun, you’ll learn a lot and you’ll literally be saving lives.

 

Our next Adoption Counselor training session will be held on Saturday, June 13 from 4:30-6:00 PM at the Homeward Trails Adoption Center located in Fairfax Station, VA.
